LifeVac is a non-powered, non-invasive, portable suction device used to clear an upper airway obstruction. LifeVac has a one-way valve that does not allow any air to enter a choking victim on the downward motion. The LifeVac comes fully equipped with an adult mask, a pediatric mask, and a practice mask. The duration of the suction is minimal which makes LifeVac safe and effective. LifeVac is easy to use in an obstructed airway emergency. Free online training is available.
• No prescription required • Not equipped to be used on persons under 22lbs. (Based on the mask manufacturers general guidelines for the pediatric mask, 22lbs. is the recommended minimum weight for a proper fit. We have confirmed that LifeVac is safe and effective for this weight range and above.) • Check masks periodically and strongly consider replacement every two to three years
The LifeVac is a non-powered single patient portable suction device developed for resuscitating an aspirating victim when the standard protocol has been followed without success. The negative pressure generated by the force of the suction is 3 times greater than the highest recorded abdominal thrusts. The duration of suction is minimal so LifeVac is safe and effective.
